CEO Discusses Need for Diversity, Inclusion with Insurance Business UK

“I don’t think you’re born a leader or born with confidence or bravery or boldness. Instead, through a repeated set of experiences, you start to reinforce certain ideas about yourself.”

According to Rekha Skantharaja (pictured), the CEO and president of Tangram Insurance Services, the time is right for the nature of the conversation around diversity and inclusion within the insurance industry to make a fundamental change. So much of the dialogue surrounding women in insurance is generic in origin and built to reinforce the idea that women are inherently risk-averse or less suited to a competitive business environment.
